Since I have been home I fertilized the remnants and have been watering every day as it is extremely hot and dry here. Hal did water a couple times while I was gone which allowed things to survive, but he is not as good a deer deterrent as my dogs apparently are.
There will be no snow peas this year. What should have been 4-6 foot high plants are now about 6 inches tall, all the leaves and even vines eaten. The green beans, which were eaten down to stems are regrowing leaves. So are the zucchini, the 3 hills that I have left out of 6 anyway. Forget about the cucumbers, there is one that must have sprouted late and made it through the devastation but it is barely a week old.
